A volcano turned into a coffee estate
The Pacamara Story
Montecarlos was the first estate in the world to plant and develop the Pacamara coffee variety.
El Salvador's National Coffee Laboratory had been working on the crossings between the Pacas and Maragojipe varieties. Foreseeing its potential, Carlos bought most of the material they had available between 1987-1990 to plant and develop it at Montecarlos.
Montecarlos had its first Pacamara commercial crop in 1992/1993. Since then, many other countries have adopted the Pacamara and it is now considered one of the most exciting and unique coffee varieties in the specialty market.
